    I don't see temperature checks as a solution. Sure, they might stop someone with clear symptoms, but in both the incubation period (up to 2 weeks) and in cases where a Covid sufferer has no fever (as much as 2/3rds of cases in at least 1 peer reviewed study I've seen) they aren't going to help.

    Not sure why they are bothering with this then?

    More than $8bn (£6.5bn) has been pledged to help develop a coronavirus vaccine and fund research into the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
    Some 40 countries and donors took part in an online summit hosted by the EU.
    EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the money would help kickstart unprecedented global co-operation.

    'Cos its what they do, 'cos they perceive not to do so smacks of them "not caring" and leaving themsel;ves open to accusations of incompetentce?

    Im not diaagreeing with Phil ... just trying to suggest a reason why theyd try if it cant be done . i.e. its a quasi-loiticalk reason, not a scientific one.

    don't quite get what you are unsure about? obviously they are hoping to develop the first ever effective vaccine for a coronavirus. hopefully they'll succeed. if they don't we'll have to get used to living with it.

    if we don't have a vaccine then the virus will continue to spread, measures like these would be useful, as they slow the rate it spreads, so that the situation is/becomes/ remains manageable.
